Hmm...I wonder how many people globally with #fakevirus #COVID19 are (or were) SMOKERS who’ve used cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, marijuana, or VAPING DEVICES in the past year, or non-smokers who’ve been exposed to the emissions from those substances??? today.com/health/what-ar…
Funny how #fakevirus #COVID19 symptoms EXACTLY match symptoms of #VAPINGillness. Makes me strongly believe the #TOBACCO #MARIJUANA industries & lobbies have a LOT to do with this #Event201 #PlannedDemic #Scamdemic. Maybe shifting blame & shutting down legal claims against them...
@realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @RealCandaceO @BillFOXLA @TuckerCarlson @sean_hannitty @AP Maybe someone should INVESTIGATE this & come up with some statistics. I’d do it, but I have neither the tools nor money nor contacts to do so. Maybe y’all can put it to your followers.

True.

But there must be strict licensing standards. Drugs are as dangerous as guns. #marijuana, like #alcohol, can be abused & should not be used by young people. Studies show problems w/ mental health and developing minds - and early use of THC supercharged 420. @JaneParkerMC

In addition a number of entries into the marijuana game are people who couldn’t pass a basic background check. Forget the workers as the lobbyists have tried to portray it but the owners and other various sketchy entities that have risen up to enter the “legal” framework.

If the USA 🇺🇸 is to take a serious position in #corruption and the harm it does to #Democracy - then we need to have rigorous standards and tough regulations over this industry. My county and the largest county in @RepJimmyPanetta’s District is awash in public corruption.

Excellent post.

Now more than ever it is a priority for local govt.’s to root out #corruption or the appearance of corruption. We have elected officials - many of whom are under active investigation by the @FBILosAngeles and other districts for quid pro quo - and the one

main mover of #Monterey #County policy (BOS) is offering up some sweet-heart deals to an industry that has serious criminal problems - aside from being illegal at the federal level.

1) lowered background check standards

2) reduced tax payments made by this industry

3) deemed an #Essential #Business

4) demands a deferred payment of taxes and a delay in any increase in taxes

Where do you stand @JaneParkerMC ?

Where do you stand @AdamsSupervisor ?

Where do you stand @SupervisorAlejo ? (Considering the payments he rec.)

If the name #Caldwell sounds familiar it’s because she is married to MCSO “Narc” #MarkCaldwell - who ⁦@Calkins_Royalmontereycountyweekly.com/news/local_new…

Caldwell, the Sheriff’s department commander has been involved in a number of sketchy issues in my community - and is good friends with fired commander Mike Richards - who ran for sheriff in 2014 - and lost

Pardoned and “Reformed” Concert Promoter Dave Drew has an especially close relationship with Mike Richards - and defends Richards every chance he gets.

@AdeleFrese @SalinasPD - correct?

Very #JoeExotic

Apparently this behavior is acceptable to our “community leaders”

Here was the thing with Dennis Donohue as Mayor of Salinas. He was a terrible Mayor. Even Joe Gunter, the current Mayor of #Salinas, was running around investigating Donohue for some crime or walking on crime scenes without permission.

He played fast and loose with the rules
2/

He sent Kelly McMillin a “police officer” over to the #Salinas #Californian (it was a daily paper at the time) to threaten them with zero #transparency if they didn’t stop writing mean articles about Dennis, but more importantly, his buddy Bruce”Troll” Taylor.

Donohue made space for Bankers Casino, a future card room owned by a guy he was on the planning commish with - in a bizarre property transaction - with some deal made over dirt lots on Division St (probation was all abuzz about this, because ...)

He brought #Salinas

✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

Potter is an elected official who has access to millions of dollars - but as the @MontereyHerald reported - when @JoeLivernois & @Calkins_Royal were in charge - he wasn’t a great businessman.

But LH set up a trust to help him get his Casa in the CCBTS. Easy.

Now his job, when he isn’t performing his duties as Mayor of #Carmel, is lobbying for the billion dollar #marijuana business.

Convenient. Friends in #high places.

Former member of the #corrupt @CityofSalinas city council & *public figure President & CEO at Monterey County Business Council (MCBC)

Frmr Councilwoman Craig - when you arrived on the #Salinas City Council - did you call for a federal investigation into fraud in COS 457b TD?
2/

did you call for a federal investigation for the land deal the @CityofSalinas made with the owners of a Division Street property?

are you close with convicted cocaine furnisher Mike Hackett who owns or owned the Pizza Parlor within the City of Salinas’ city limits?

have you ever accepted campaign money from anyone in the ‘legal’ #marijuana business?

would you help identify the man in this photo?

(Thank you for *unlocking* your account. It was locked most of the time you were on the #Salinas City Council.)

1. My daughter is an environmental conservation & sustainability major at #TheUniversityofNewHampshire One year ago, we met @TulsiGabbard at a town meeting in #MerrimackNH in regards to #PFAS in their water, due to leakage from a local company
2. Watching #Tulsi interact w/ the concerned locals, we could see she was genuine. We could feel her empathy & compassion for their stories & how much she truly cares.
She saw us sign waving & after the meeting came straight over to thank us & to say hello
3. We told my husband all about Tulsi & how amazing she was & wanted him to come & meet her too. So that night we went to our first town hall meeting to see Tulsi in Exeter, NH. We got to meet @vrin_davan & @abewilliamsdp too They felt like family ❤️

Let's get 2020 started. I'll be posting Campaign Resolutions like #NewYearsResolution but how I'll Represent #NC13 in D.C.
1 - I am not accepting Corporate PAC donations like my Republican opponent. My vote is not for sale.
secure.actblue.com/donate/scott20…
2 - I will work to engage citizens to hold our Government accountable to the people. I'm not running to be a politician. I am elected to be a Public Servant. I work for the district not for the #donorclass. Our #workingclass families need representation in D.C.
3 - We live in #TwoAmericas. The #ExtremeRich & everybody else. Everybody else is having to work 2 or 3 jobs. We need to focus on improving #workingclass wages. I will support a $15 min raise. My Republican opponent voted NO on HR 582 - Raise the Wage Act

RIGHT NOW: @GovPritzker announces 11,000+ pardons for people “whose low-level cannabis convictions have held them back from good jobs, housing and financial aid for college,” governor’s release said. Recreational #marijuana becomes legal in Illinois tomorrow. More @ABC7Chicago.
Every one of the 11,017 being pardoned was convicted for “up to 30 grams not associated with a violent offense,” per gov’s office, which explains process: state police ID’d eligible convictions ➡️ prison review board verifies ➡️ gov. pardons ➡️ AG files for expungements.

We share the @Surgeon_General's concerns about keeping adolescents & pregnant people safe & healthy. However, we are concerned that his presentation didn’t clearly depict the latest trends because rates of marijuana use among these groups have remained stable or decreased. THREAD
The 2018 Monitoring the Future survey suggests that #marijuana use among 8th, 10th, & 12th graders remains low & stable “despite the changing state marijuana laws during this time period."
According to @SAMHSAgov’s 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health released last week, marijuana use among adolescents aged 12-17 has remained low & stable since 2015. Use among adults 18-25 years old stayed stable in 2017 & 2018. Only increases were among adults aged 26+.

1/5 This week, my #SundaySpotlight on #PublicHealth science shines light on a new @JAMA_current study on #marijuana use during pregnancy. bit.ly/2L6P7vx
2/5 While researchers caution about potential confounders, their data very much suggest that #cannabis use during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of preterm birth.
3/5 The findings are particularly concerning since an accompanying study from @NIDAnews & @samhsagov finds that a growing number of U.S. moms-to-be are using #marijuana. bit.ly/2RsP6D6

Today, @DrMcCance_Katz shares California data compared to national data on prevalence of substance use disorder and mental health issues at the 2019 CMHACY conference.
SAMHSA will focus on nation no longer just on grantees.
56.8M Americans have a mental or substance use disorder in the country.
California looks very similar to the nation.

A 7-year-old Guatemalan girl died in #BorderPatrol custody after crossing with her father & 161 other migrants in the #NewMexico Bootheel. @DHSgov officials just tried to explain to reporters how remote & dangerous the region is, but it's hard to convey if you haven't seen it.
I've been covering the #Bootheel for years. Central American #migrants have been arriving for years, but not in the numbers seen in the past three months. When the latest group arrived, 4 agents were there to meet them. FOUR. The group included 50 unaccompanied minors.
So, for those who don't know the #Bootheel, its three north-south mountain chains or its two north-south roads, the tiny #AntelopeWells port of entry or the #BorderPatrol forward operating base that is barely staffed, here are some stories by me & @rosalesquique

Italiani, 50 anni fa moriva #MartinLutherKing in quello che dobbiamo accettare oggi, dopo così tanta manomissione storiografica, come un vero omicidio di Stato. L'esempio di come l' America tratta gli #afroamericani è tutt' oggi ancora racchiusa in quell' omicidio. #MLK50 #USA
Alle piantagioni si sono sostituite le incarcerazioni di massa degli #afroamericani, figli e nipoti di quegli stessi #schiavi. Al linciaggio e all' impiccagione si è sostituito il tiro a segno dei #poliziotti che sparano a teenagers disarmati.
Gli stessi poliziotti, quasi tutti #bianchi, che non pagano mai le conseguenze delle loro azioni, non un giorno di carcere. Nemmeno un processo. La loro scusa è quella di sempre: "pensavo fosse armato". Ma ai ragazzini bianchi non succede.
